“A cross-country oriented ski area trail not frequented by the lift-serviced crowd.

Park at the Beaver Run lot. Ride east out of the parking lot and 1/2 mile up the access road. Pass the Beaver Run Superchair, then the lower Superconnect lift terminal. The Wanderer Trail begins on the left side of the access road in a right switchback 500' further.
Wanderer begins in the forest before dropping down to a drainage in an open meadow. This section of trail is a bit primitive. Just follow the drainage uphill. The trail passes through two intersections with horse trails used for ski area pack tours. Be alert for horses. Wanderer switches back then climbs back to the access road.
Go left up the road to the Ten Mile Station restaurant. Turn right towards the restaurant and take the left forking road passing above it. Look for a "Sunday Worship Services" sign on the left side of the road and the continuation of the Wanderer singletrack just beyond the sign. Wanderer enters the forest between two ski trails before again climbing to the access road after a short distance.
Go right and climb the access road a short distance. At a long fence line on the right of the access road, Wanderer continues. From this point to the Superconnect, mid-load station Wanderer is pretty easy to follow. Just continue across any intersecting road, and at the two trail junctions to the right. Upon reaching the mid-load station, descend to another access road in Sawmill Gulch and turn left, up the drainage.
Climb the steep access road for about 1/4 mile to the continuation of Wanderer singletrack on the right hand side of the road. Climb to the top, and end of Wanderer on the 4 O'clock ski run.
